    Description:

    Formerly known as Charter Growth Capital, Focus Ventures invests in privately held, expansion stage technology companies. Founded in 1997, the firm seeks communications and software companies that have completed initial product development and have begun the marketing of their products and/or services. Additionally, the firm seeks emerging growth companies that can benefit from Focus Ventures' extensive network in Asia. Focus prefers companies that have received previous backing from top-tier venture capital firm(s). The firm's investments are typically in the $3-8 million range, and Focus has served as the lead investor in approximately half of the rounds in which it participates. The firm currently has over $830 million under management.
